Last week, Tradewind Energy submitted a second application for their Alta Farms II wind farm in northwest DeWitt County.

 

Friday Morning on the WHOW Morning Show, DeWitt County Board Chair David Newberg weighed in on the re-submission and indicates the application hasn't been accepted yet as Regional Radio News reported Friday, because of incompletions recognized by Zoning Administrator Angie Sarver.

 

 

Chairman Newberg anticipates another emotional process that will result in a special County Board meeting. While he doesn't have a timeline of when the Board may take up a vote on the proposal, he indicates they are seeking out a new venue for the vote to take place because of likely conflicts with the school district.

 

 

Last week, Tradewind officials indicated to Regional Radio News, they were hopeful the Board would take the issue up shortly after the holiday season.
